  • Description


    We are Dominic and Hannah, we're both in our mid-thirties, and we live in Amsterdam with our dog Juno. We just bought our first own apartment in Amsterdam, and we're renovating the new place from the ground up. We're looking for someone who has a building or DIY experience. It would be great if you have used a drill and power tools before and if you don't shy away from getting dirty and working hard together with us.

    We are German and British and have been living in Amsterdam for a few years. We're happy to provide you with all the tips of getting to know Amsterdam like a local.

  • Help


    We will need help on the construction site of the house with building and cleaning up. You will be helping and assisting Dominic, who is doing all of the tasks himself. We are going to build a new floor, we are re-doing the garden, we are building new walls, insulation and a deck in the garden. Dominic will guide you in everything we do. It would be important that you've worked with power tools (like a drill) before and that you're ok with using them. English is mandatory to be able to communicate with us.

  • Accommodation


    We have a spare bedroom and cook almost every night. You will have your own bedroom in the center of Amsterdam and you can eat with us whenever we cook, and you can also eat breakfast and lunch in your own time. We live with our 2-year-old dog Juno, so you just need to be ok with dogs. We have a "normal" life schedule and are looking for people with a similar mindset who don't only want to party in Amsterdam.
